Sports Spectacular Luncheon
The Fifth Annual Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center Sports Spectacular Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, January 27, 2010 at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa in Indian Wells. This year’s special guest will be Joe Torre, manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The event will benefit the Center, which provides counseling to physically, sexually and emotionally abused children, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
Joe Torre and his wife Ali are committed advocates of children who are victims of abuse, and are long-time friends of the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center at Eisenhower. In 2002, they founded the Joe Torre Safe At Home® Foundation to raise awareness about the issue of domestic violence and to support children who are victims.
“Joe and Ali are very special to everyone associated with the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center, and we are very grateful for their continued and dedicated support,” says Susan Reynolds, Executive Vice President of the Center. “We are thrilled that Joe has agreed to speak at our Fifth Annual Sports Spectacular Luncheon, which promises to be a lively and interesting afternoon, and one of the highlights of the season.”
Since joining the Dodgers, Joe Torre has led the team to two consecutive appearances in the National League Championship Series. He came to Los Angeles after managing the New York Yankees from 1996 to 2007, guiding the Yankees to four World Series championships.
Tickets for the luncheon are $90 per person, with tables of 10 available for $900. Special VIP packages are also available.
